Reporting On Elder Care Businesses

Written by Barbara Mascio

We do not use negative reporting or fear tactics to inform consumers on elder care services. We have chosen to takerepparttar positive approach by focusing our attention on those elder care businesses that can prove their commitment to serving our senior citizens. Each service within our exclusive network is literally approved and endorsed byrepparttar 146677 very seniors they currently serve.

Not every business would open itself to such scrutiny, especially givenrepparttar 146678 fact that this consumer-driven survey process is not mandated. Not only is this voluntary, each business within our network has paid a fee forrepparttar 146679 survey process. That in itself should alert you torepparttar 146680 fact that these businesses are not only confident in their ability to serve our elderly with great care, they are willing to prove it.

Nay Sayers have said all along, "Barb, you'll never get businesses to agree to this, let alone pay forrepparttar 146681 survey process", followed by, "You will have to offer this at no charge torepparttar 146682 business community and chargerepparttar 146683 senior for your service."

I feel (strongly) that seniors should not have to pay just forrepparttar 146684 privilege of learning which service is safe to use, which service will meet his or her needs and budgets. Seniors are hit hard enough these days.
